they are older and have certain religious beliefs. but they cannot play a financial goal. host: john is a democrat. caller: i just wanted to say that bush, romney, and the republicans have set up this tax structure which helps these companies take our jobs overseas for cheaper labor. and the internet will also suck up a lot of jobs in the coming future. you can have a job almost anywhere, so all the tax money but being received, i believe, is going to go to corporations who are going to invest it in prisons, to house people cheaply, and to make sure they don't have to pay social security and welfare, because everybody will be in jail. host: since we are talking abou what campaigns are spending money, are you hearing a lot of ads on the radio or seeing them on tv? caller: i am. they set things to fall under this president make him look bad because it had already been in the process and they knew he could not stop it. then they would change it back into a police state once they get back in and put everybody in jail and take everybody's houses and stuff. host: let's look at the battlegr

that a return rate amongst absentee among republicans for john mccain. host: on the ballot issues and bloomberg insider rights this a -- guest: the civil union issue, i think that is accurate, by the way. i have not see the civil union issue pop up in to the contras as of the average voter. on the margins, -- into the consciousness of the average voter. on the margins, it may pop up. although, it would traditionally break into the democratic party since they have been the sponsor of this type of legislation in the legislature. the predominant issue around the country is the economy. host: the bloomberg insider also reports -- guest: can we do a better job, absolutely. and we must do a better job for one to remain a relevant party on the national scene, and particularly in the west. the latino vote, the hispanic vote as we like to call that in the west, it had shifted toward the republicans under president and former colorado gov. bill once actually won the hispanic vote here in 2002. it began to slip away. we had some issues with one of our congressman, congressman tom tancredo pushed away some

we create. john deere or caterpillar probably cannot get started today. we are continuing to penalize folks that want to get things off the ground. with the government need to do is make sure we give them proper regulation, clean water, clean air, ct the employees. -- safety of the employees. it is one of the key things. the person that might be building something in the roster they might turn into the next john deere to put these people to work making 30, 40, 50 an hour. one of the things that is great after visiting people here is the training facilities they have here, the labor folks know well that when they get that job and the people that actually hire them, they know the heart -- the quality will be there. this is where we have to get the skills sets to our community colleges. get these folks working together to where they are tied in with the businesses. one of the shortages we have is engineers. across the board. getting everybody working together for the common good would be big plus. >> the next question goes to, schilling first. >> a recent campaign at, congressman i learn
population and retired veteran population as well. john mccain carried that very narrowly. it was practically a 50-50 with obama. there's no way it's going to be that close this time. but i want to see what presented president obama gets in virginia beach. if the bows out of the water, that tells me something. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not mak
. and john, kfox night anger. -- night anchor. is going to start with the first question. >> heather wilson wrote the affordable care act is unconstitutional because of the individual mandate. if not thrown out by the supreme court, it should be repealed and replaced. martin heinrich voted for the bill. what should the replacement be? if it is to be kept, what changes should be made? >> i think it is important to understand why it should be repealed and replaced. it was a mistake. it is already costing jobs in the state of new mexico. it is not just jobs. it takes $700 billion out of medicare. there is only one candidate for the united states senate tonight who has voted to cut medicare. i also believe that it increases the cost of health care. we are seeing that already come close to $3,000 increase in health insurance premiums. it is going to cause our rural hospitals to close. i worked on the health care improvement act. i do not mind if my kids are on my insurance. i want them out of my refrigerator, but i do not mind if they are on my insurance. i think people should be able to buy ins
after -- is a campaign just after 3:00 p.m. eastern. casey -- casejohn id is encouraging -- gov. john k. sacha is encouraging early voting. >> we have made incredible progress in the last eight years. we have balanced budgets in all those years and have become the fiscal n.v. of the country and have the largest budget surplus in ever in our history. i believe we can cut taxes for every hoosier. but john, you just said that we pay for things in indiana. when you were speaker of the house, for five of the six years that you were running the state house, indiana ran deficits. when ms. daniels' came into power just a couple years later on budgets that you helped to write, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things. i would like to know from my colleagues on stage, how will we preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana? >> congressman, if you had spent the last 12 years in indiana, or rather, in congress, you would know that our budget has to be balanced in indiana according to our constitution. i've balanced and produced a bipart
promoting dill saying what a bad guy -- says i'm a supporter of george w. bush. i campaigned for john kerry in twawr, but it comes to me that safe nation, pac, 57 street, georgia. who is this? it's a couple republican operatives in atlanta who are sending a misleading flier to democrats in maine trying to convince them to vote for cynthia dill. the whole thing is ridiculous. i think the rule ought to be only residents of the place where you are running can contribute. if you run for the u.s. senate in maine, only maine people can contribute. i would live with that system in a minute. >> the founder principle was representation. that's leading to the birth ofÑr our country. it was not about corporations. it was not about rove. it was about representation. one of the most precious freedoms that was free speech. since the unit, terrible decision. super pacs bad, election reform. we need that. people talk about big government being bad. my experience in terms of the campaign is it's the political and industrial complex that's just insidious both here in maine and nationalliment i think we have
of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots accept as a backup in case of emergency. we don't have a lever machines any
this state twice. in 2,000 it went to george w. bush. but in two thour four it went to john carry. the president got a nine point victory in 2008. so we are a toss up state. the polls go back and forth forth. >>> it's difficult to determine who is going to win this state. host: how do residents vote on election day? guest: there is not early voting but tr is absentee ballots which have you to sign a form saying you're not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally polls are open from 7:00 to 7:00, some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other stratist cal facts are that we are one of the least tax states in the nation, the least stack state actually. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two governor candidates are running on that issue as a matter of fact. host: and talk about the recount laws that are in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that t
congressman john, i want to the thank you for being here. this was a day that the president and i had planned -- not working? can you turn it up? is that better? this is a day that the president and i had to travel from florida to ohio to virginia. the weather has other things in mind. the couple of days ago we canceled the virginia stop this we did not to imperil any lives. then we went to florida last night. he got up this morning in said i have to go back right now the storm is getting out of hand. i have to handle it. i said that is the right call. i spoke in orlando and got on a plane to come here and be with vice-president and joe biden. i will bring him on in a minute. i want to thank him for all he has done for our country. let me just a few words about this election in of ohio. i like youngstown a lot.
